Valentines Day, 2018

As I mentioned previously, I make something new for dinner every Valentines Day for SpecialK. This year, I had trouble deciding what to make.  I finally decided to make something that we had discussed previously, that he was open to trying.

I made us Lasagna! Ok, to be fair, I made us noodle-less lasagna.  Served with a small side salad, because every lasagna needs a good side salad.  I also made us dessert, because it was Valentines Day.  However, the dessert wasn’t chocolate.  Do I lose any points?

As soon as I can locate the recipe I used, I will update this post.  I made one difference from the recipe.  Instead of a meat base, with cheese on top, I layered this lasagna.  Oh, and instead of making in a pie plate, I used the same glass loaf pan I used to make lasagna many years ago!

Dessert was buckwheat crepes.  I happily found a recipe years ago, which I enjoyed at the time.  I could not locate that recipe, so I dug into my gray binder and found Bon Appetites Basic Buckwheat Crepe recipe.

I served the crepes with some cinnamon apple slices I had canned.  They were not sweetened, and that was why SpecialK didn’t love the filling.  I did put some real dairy whipped cream on top.  The crepes, however, were approved.  I only made a small amount this time, but will make more in the future.

I have tried to search Amazon to give you a link to this flour, but I can’t find it.  It is Anthony’s Organic Buckwheat Flour.  It was a very mild flavor and I absolutely recommend it.

Do you have any rituals for Valentines Day?
